Introducing our new film series …
Take the last frame to Clarksville … for the first time in over three decades, film has returned to the corner of Franklin and First! Sponsored by Planters Bank, with additional support provided by the Clarksville-Montgomery County Arts & Heritage Development Council, this film series features vintage flicks and modern classics, presented on Sunday afternoons in our 153-seat auditorium.
Admission is $5 (cash or check only). Tickets for each film go on sale one week prior to the showing and are available at the box office between 9:00am and 2:00pm, Monday through Friday. Any remaining tickets are available at the door one hour prior to showtime, and popcorn, candy and bottled water are available as concessions.
Fred Astaire stars as a rising Broadway star who tries to break away from former dance partner Ann Miller so he can be with newcomer Judy Garland. Among the many highlights are Astaire’s slow-motion version of “Steppin’ Out,” the Astaire/Garland duet “We’re a Couple of Swells,” the opening rendition of “Happy Easter,” and the closing performance of the title number.

The Ten Commandments
This American biblical epic relates the life of Moses, from the time he was discovered in the bullrushes as an infant by the pharoah’s daughter, to his long, hard struggle to free the Hebrews from their slavery at the hands of the Egyptians. Starring Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as the Pharaoh, this was the last film directed by Cecil B. DeMille.
